We had some visitors to the station this morning to brief us on the dementia friendly community scheme.
A few facts.
1 in 3 people over suffer from dementia
Swanage has the second largest number of residents over the age of 50 in Dorset.
35% of those with Dementia go out once a week or less.
10% go out once a month or less.
60% are worried about getting lost.
There are free Dementia awareness sessions - becoming a dementia friend gives an understanding of dementia and the small things we can all do to make a difference.
